Don’t be a hater.

October 6, 2010


We’ve had a weed growing in the junk at the end of our driveway for months now.  It comforts me.  It really says to passers-by, “We’re not trying too hard around here.”  I wish I would have taken photos of it in its prime, but it’s gone to seed now.

Lloyd was going to pick it this evening when he went out to get the trash from the curb, and I shrieked, “NO!!  Don’t kill it!” I have carefully avoided it with a mower since ….. August? It must come to its natural end. In fire.

Sweet little guy.  You look like a sparker.

It helps me when I'm backing out of the driveway.

    You do realize that letting that go to seed will result in large colonies of weeds with aggressive root structures choking out all the grass in that area and leaving painful sharp stubble where your lawn once was. Heh. Just kidding. I have no idea what that plant is.

    Don’t want to sound stupid, but what’s with the big guy in red in front of the house? Your house? Neighbor’s house?

    It’s natural fire! HA!

    It’s hard backing out of my driveway. Alot of people have trouble with it. So my neighbor put up a reflector thing on a tall stick so no one would ram into her garden while backing out of my driveway. She’s only had to replace that thing about 3 times. I should suggest the weed method to her.

    If you love it that much, you really ought to give it a name…
    (Then try killing it!)

    I must live at the end of the earth. I don’t know how you get a gravatar, nor how to change one into something that looks like I have a choice. Help me, techno wizard people…
